I've been enjoying the dry heat. It's just not as unbearably hot as it used to be, after 10 months of truly unbearable heat and humidity. We'll see how I do in the "cold" (I think it's supposed to get up to 70 today... I know, 90% of you think that's pretty warm... It's only in Florida that the weather casters start joking about mittens and hats when it falls much below 80 degrees).
Mae Bae's fox stolen shoe still hasn't been recovered. We did see the culprit, who we'll call "Swiper," hanging around outside with a handful of deer yesterday afternoon. Since he's not a whole lot larger than a house cat, he's not particularly intimidating. Unless your a shoe sitting outside the front door.
Sadie's taken to heart that we can point out places on the walk where rattlesnakes have been spotted (and where G.G. once made short work of one with only a rock and his walking canes, when it was near the house), and she's quick to remind us whenever Mae does anything she shouldn't be doing that: "When I was a baby I used to do that too..."
Now to head out into the cold...
